William was born in Antigo, Wisconsin on March 19, 1934 the son of John and Iva Wolf. William grew up on a dairy farm in Lily. Farming was not for him and at age 20 he moved to Wausau where he met his future wife, age 18. They were married on July 7, 1954.
William was a very versatile man and had many kinds of jobs. However, the three jobs he liked the best were as a driver-salesman for Pepsi for seven years, owning his own mobile home repair business in West Fargo, ND and Alexandria for 15 years and as a life insurance salesman for Combined Insurance Company for 10 years. William retired in 1997. He has lived in Lily, WI, Dee, OR, Wausau, WI, St Cloud, West Fargo, ND, and Alexandria. He has lived in Alexandria with his wife of 55 years since 1980.
William was a very active church member, being an usher, serving on the vestry and was a junior warden. He also did quite a bit of remodeling in the church. William was always ready to give a helping hand to anyone who needed it. His hobbies were paint by number pictures, arts and craft, camping, sightseeing and working around his home and yard.
